  • Synergy analysis as a tool to design and assess an effective stroke rehabilitation 

    Urra, Oiane; Casals Gelpi, Alicia; Jané Campos, Raimon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The poor rehabilitation success rate, including the cases of ineffective and detrimental adaptations, make stroke a leading cause of disability. Thus, it is essential to recognize the mechanisms driving healthy motor ...
  • Study of synergy patterns during the execution of stroke rehabilitation exercises 

    Urra, Oiane; Casals Gelpi, Alicia; Jané Campos, Raimon (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Stroke is a leading cause of disability, being motor impairments its major consequence. Despite rehabilitation, more than 60% of the patients report upper-limb motor dysfunction. The design of novel rehabilitation strategies ...
  • Toward new controller design paradigms in networked control systems 

    Torres Guerrero, Gina; Velasco García, Manel; Martí Colom, Pau; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report

    Robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery has demonstrated its benefits in comparison with traditional procedures. However, one of the major drawbacks of current robotic system approaches is the lack of force feedback. ...
  • Unconstrained L1-regularized minimization with interpolated transformations for heart motion compensation 

    Avilés Rivero, Angélica Ivone; Sobrevilla Frisón, Pilar; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Motion compensation constitutes a challenging issue in minimally invasive beating heart surgery. Since the zone to be repaired has a dynamic behaviour, precision and surgeon's dexterity decrease. In order to solve this ...
  • Virtual Robot: a new teleoperation paradigm for minimally invasive robotic surgery 

    Hernansanz Prats, Alberto; Amat Girbau, Josep; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a novel teleoperation paradigm, the Virtual Robot (VR), focused on facilitating the surgeon tasks in minimally invasive robotic surgery. The VR has been conceived to increase the range of applicability ...
